Beautiful venue

We had a wonderful experience here. Our day was absolutely perfect. The Davenport was amazing, they were great about keeping in touch and making our vision of our day come to life. We were so happy to get a day here for our wedding. It was also a great deal for the venue and everything included.

Our Day Was Perfect!

My new husband and I were just recently married at The Davenport and I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful the venue was! Inside and Out! From the curtain lights, to the chandeliers, to the beautiful staircase, and street lights outside covering the streets of Greer.
The price was affordable, the venue was stunning, and Scott was SO easy to work with and get all preparations for our big day complete! I would recommend this location (and Scott) 1000x times over! Thank you so much for making our BIG day PERFECT!馃挅

I鈥檓 honestly super impressed with the customer service that we received. They were super flexible, the staff gave us their personal numbers so we could contact them incase we needed anything. I 100% recommend this Venue and Greer even rentals for your party needs. I know that we will be using them for all our future events.
